Freddie Mitchell Lewis
A Jonesborough man who shot another man in the face during an argument last year was sentenced to 16 years in prison during a hearing Wednesday.
Freddie Mitchell Lewis, aka Rooster, 33, pleaded guilty to attempted first-degree murder for shooting Reed Baker during a second encounter after their initial confrontation had ended.
Lewis intended to plead guilty in June, but Judge Robert Cupp cut that hearing short when Lewis made a claim of self defense by saying Baker pulled a knife on him prior to the shooting.
